I am not cross posting here. I posted this same question in the Road Cycling forum. It was good info. However as a prospective road bike owner i still have questions. I think my style of riding will be closer to touring than racing.
Using most of the online fit calculators, they recommend that i ride somewhere near 59 cm. The French fit on the Colorado Cyclist site, puts me on a 60-62.
So, for those of you that ride more like a tourer than a racer:
1. How tall are you?
2. What frame size do you ride? (if you ride multiple sizes, please list all of them- road bikes only)
3. What is your cycling inseam? (this is calculated by placing your bare feet about 8 " apart and standing against a wall. Place a book firmly up into your crotch and make sure the back of the book rests squarely against the wall. Then measure from the top of the book to the floor.)
4. What is your pants inseam?
